    Bit impratical rubbing an entire chassis down...tedious in fact

    wheel centers and large flat surfaces yes, rub down, but i wouldnt bust my bollocks to rub and entire chassis down to make it look shinier than it did when it was new

    Yes rub down, just the flat bits you are going to try and get a "finish" on ..............
    But if its flat at all, you'll always see something to rub, even if its only a bit of dust.
    2 pack primer is extremely easy to flatten, the dust cant be good.

  6. As you paint in an open fronted shed id be more worried about the flies doing backstroke in your perfect factory finish that you stride yourself to acheive everytime
    This time your are wrong

    As we paint that much in 1 go and 2 coats of high build the over spray can settle on the chassis
    So a simple rub over removes the over spray and thus keys the surface aswell because we aint painting a wet on wet its simple really no hard ship just crack on stop moaning and get it done

    2k primer is so easy to rub down as that is what its made for why use 2k and not use it for what its deigned for change the tune will you.

  7. Only if its dryed for a day say, you have to key the primer up for the top coat to bite

    But wet on wet neednt bother as the thinners will provide the bond you need

    Yes it's dry, I heated the paint instead of using thinner
  9. A few more with grey on get her out today onto the lift an built up 20170110_082824.jpg 20170110_082832.jpg 20170110_082844.jpg 20170110_082912.jpg 20170110_082852.jpg

    Over spray :ROFLMAO:

    you want to learn to spray properly by the sound of it, or are you another one of those who likes to hear the compressor running flat out all day....

    you dont need 45lb at the end of the gun to make a decent job, you see these lads spraying in a huge cloud of paint mist, all they are doing is costing themselves money

    wasting paint, wasting electric

    If i could afford your prices id send the 1490 down. Il like to see you rub every sqaure inch of the chassis down with a bit of scotchbrite, and i mean all of it, underneath, pipes, the lot. I might even time you doing it...chances are it would change your views about rubbing down being easy

  13. For your information there is something called blow past so that creates over spray mr perfect!!!
    And we strip everything the skid units so rubbing the whole skid is easier its quite simple really so if i have to explain that, then you aint all you crack your self up to be

    Anyway stop slandering on my thread your the reason why most geuine people stop replying to threads

    We must be doing something right though john as we have 14 full jobs in so in my eyes people are happy with our finish

    Where is your thread detailing your workmanship? It's easy to criticise, can you walk the walk or do you just talk the talk?

    Unless you can set the spray pattern to cover say a link arm without any missing it you get over spray, you will be telling us next your sprayer only coats the wheat leafs and none hits the ground?
